Although early prognostications forecast today's Single Ticket Rainbow Pick Six Jackpot pool would reach approximately $3 million, Santa Anita's popular 20 cent minimum wager, with a mandatory payout in place, generated a massive total pool on Saturday of $5,352,827.
With a carryover from Friday of $815,939 serving as a catalyst, $4,536,888 in “new” Rainbow Six money cascaded in, creating a pari-mutuel bonanza for the holders of 80 winning tickets, which were each worth $53,312.60.
With a nine-race card in store for Sunday, the Rainbow Six will be comprised of races four through nine. Approximate post time for race four tomorrow is at 2:35 p.m. PT.
The Grade III, $100,000 Las Flores Stakes, which has attracted a field of 10 older fillies and mares at six furlongs, has been carded as race eight. The Bob Baffert-trained Dream Tree is the 3-1 morning line favorite and she'll be ridden by Mike Smith.
First post time is at 1 p.m., admission gates will open at 11 a.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.
